The Cleveland Monsters continue their road trip tonight against the Milwaukee Admirals. These two have always been fun to watch play against each other. They both seem to bring their best game to the ice when they meet. You’ll see a combination of skill and heavy hitting from both the Admirals and Monsters tonight.
To be effective, the Monsters need to constantly roll lines. The Admirals are going to throw everything but the kitchen sink at them. Allowing the top six to get a breather will be key to keeping up with the Admirals.
Pretty much everyone on the Admirals can score. As a team, they work together to open up lanes and setup scoring chances. It also helps that the Admirals have been rolling their lines this season. This has allowed guys like Frederic Allard to shine. Speaking of Allard, he is the one to keep an eye on tonight. He’s a fly under the radar kind of player who will get into scoring position undetected. The Monsters need to meet his sneakiness with skill not aggression. The Admirals will protect him at any cost whether it be a fight or a clean, hard, bone rattling hit. As we know, the Monsters can’t afford to keep playing down a man.
With that being said, stop taking dumb penalties.
